Colin Hanks is going from a killer drama to a killer comedy: The actor who played an apocalypse-obsessed serial murderer on Dexter‘s sixth season will guest-star in an episode of Happy Endings, EW has learned. The body count should be considerably lower on the ABC comedy, as he tackles the role of… Colin Hanks, a new celebrity friend of Dave (Zachary Knighton). What brings Hanks into Dave’s world? The Steak Me Home Tonight truck has become a Chicago hotspot boasting designer drinks.

Hanks begins shooting his scenes tomorrow, and the episode will air later this season. Happy Endings‘ second season has also included guest spots from such folks as Michael McKean, Megan Mullally, Fred Savage, and Rob Riggle.
